What We Do

OHSU Code Club is an informal, on-campus meetup initiated by a group of OHSU students, staff, and faculty. We come together to share skills, ask questions, and learn new open research tools. We believe anyone can learn to program and are happy to help you start from scratch! Join us to write your first line of code, learn new data management and analysis skills, try your hand at teaching in an informal context - or just show up at our Hacky Hour co-working events to work on your own projects with company.

Skill Sharing

Share your favorite coding skills and tools with your friends and colleagues in friendly, no-pressure work-alongs.

Co-Working

Get together to work on your coding projects, help each other out and share your work.

Community Building

Meet new people in your field, from other departments, and the greater PDX community - and find out what we can do when we work together.
